41 indicted in $2 million-a-month Denver meth ring

DENVER – Colorado authorities say they’ve broken up a drug ring responsible for importing and distributing more than $2 million worth of methamphetamine in the Denver area each month.

Attorney General John Suthers said Monday 41 people have been indicted in the case.

Eighteen of them face racketeering and conspiracy charges. The rest face possession and intent-to-distribute charges.

The indictment was handed up last week. It accuses 29-year-old Aaron Castro of Commerce City and 30-year-old Alfonzo Castro of Denver of being the ringleaders.

Phone numbers listed for the two men have been disconnected. It’s not clear whether they have attorneys.

Suthers says the ring imported and distributed up to 100,000 doses of meth each month.
